Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this common adj., which persists in MGr, it is enough to cite P Ryl II. 127.30 (A.D. 29), a list of stolen property including—ξύλινον πυξίδιν ἐν ᾧ ἀργ (υρίου) (δραχμαὶ) . . δ ̄, ";a small wooden box in which were 4 silver dr.,"; P Tebt II. 414.35 (ii/A.D.) τὸν ξύλινον δίφρον, ";the wooden stool,"; P Oxy VIII. 1127.8 (A.D. 183) περιστερεῶνα σὺν τῇ τούτου κλείμακι ξυλίνῃ, ";a pigeon-house with its wooden ladder,"; and ib. XII. 1449.11 (A.D. 213–17) a statue of Demeter—οὗ ἡ προτομ () Παρίνη, τὰ δὲ ἄλλα μέρη τοῦ σώματ (ος) ξ ̣[ύλινα, ";of which the bust is of Parian marble, and the other parts of the body of wood"; (Edd.). In Syll 554.17 f. (ii/B.C. ad init.) a distinction is drawn between ξύλιναι ὦναι and σιτηραὶ ὦναι. With the remission of the 50% tax on tree-fruits in 1 Maccabees 10:29 cf. OGIS 55.13 (iii/B.C.) ἀφεῖκεν ἀτε [λεῖ ]ς τῶν τε ξυλί [νων κ ]αρπῶν : see the note. For the form ξυλικός, which cannot be distinguished in meaning, cf. P Ryl II. 157.16 (A.D. 135) τῆς δαπάνης τῆς τε ἐπισκευῆς καὶ κατασκευῆς τοῦ ξυλικοῦ [ὀργάνου, ";the cost of keeping and repairing the wooden water-wheel"; (Edd.), P Amh II. 93.20 (A.D. 181) καταιάγματος (l. κατε –) ξυλικῶν ἢ ἀργαλίων (l. ἐργ –), ";breakage of wood-work or tools"; (Edd.), and OGIS 510.7 (Ephesus—A.D. 138–61) τὴν λοιπὴν ξυλικὴν παρασκευὴν τῶν θεατρικῶν.
